Why do you believe UKAS Accredited Third Party Certification for the fire safety industry is an important measure in providing quality evidence of competency?

As a leading Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC) accredited by SSAIB, we take meeting required standards and codes of practice very seriously to give our clients the peace of mind they are in safe hands. Crucially, we need to know that the alarm equipment installed at sites that we are monitoring meet required fire safety standards too. Accredited third party certification gives us the assurance that equipment, its installation and regular maintenance is fully compliant with required standards and will not let us or our clients down when it counts.
